It remains one of Hollywood's most compelling, and unforgettable, mysteries. On Aug. 5, 1962, the body of Marilyn Monroe was found in the bedroom of her Brentwood home. The 36-year-old movie star was naked and facedown on her bed. An autopsy conducted by Dr. Thomas Noguchi, then deputy medical examiner, concluded that death was due to acute barbiturate poisoning, and a psychiatric team tied to the investigation termed it a "probable suicide."

Regarding Pamela Waterman's Counterpunch, "A Reminder: It's the Music, Singing That Really Count" (June 14): All one has to do is peruse the review ("A Not-So-Fine Madness," June 1) to the section dealing with one's interest: music and singing or setting and history. (But remember that one may not hear or see the same performance as the one reviewed opening night.) If the music and singing were most important, then one could attend only concert performances or stay at home, listening to recordings.

Did Marilyn dump RFK? . . . Cher dumps her contractor. . . . Tamagotchis vs. Giga Pets Before she died, Marilyn Monroe wasn't heartbroken over being dumped by a Kennedy; she was the one doing the dumping. So asserts John W. Miner, the former prosecutor who investigated the screen siren's death for the Los Angeles County district attorney's office. He made his assertion during a telephone interview after filing a libel suit in Los Angeles Superior Court against a supermarket tabloid.
